Grand Canyon Adventures, or Lack Thereof...

The Grand Canyon is marvelous to look upon, for about 15 minutes. Although I am in awe with its beauty and grandeur, I can't just stand there and stare at the canyon for more than 15 minutes. I wanted to hike down below or to a waterfall, go water rafting, or anything but just stand by and observe. Our kids are so young to be doing all those activies. This is not to say that it was not memorable spending time with each other. By the time we revisit, hopefully all the kids will be able to hike and have real adventures to remember.

It does seem to be a bit of a challenge to fully experience the Canyon when you have four small children with you. You have to be so careful with them with all the drops; I don't blame you for only staying 15 minutes. You should come back with your husband for an anniversary or something. I did a Grand Canyon guided hike from rim to rim with my boyfriend and it was quite an experience. We went with a group, Just Roughin It, which mostly supplied and planned everything so we were able to really enjoy the journey and each other. I definitely recommend you come back and go into the Canyon.
